Re: St Philip Neri school: Archdiocese appeals planning enforcement order

I feel your post has a rather condescending tone to it. Advisory and respectfully made requests perhaps - but each to their own. Does it really matter on whether it is a swift resolution? We have all been waiting for too long with this hideous monstrosity. I for one would rather wait a little longe...

Re: St Philip Neri school: Archdiocese appeals planning enforcement order

This is a valuable commitment from Planning Aid for London and represents a hugely important step, Julia. I contacted Planning Aid for London, and they are currently organising legal advice for the case. This outcome, combined with your status for the purposes of the Inquiry places a very onerous r...

Re: St Philip Neri school: Archdiocese appeals planning enforcement order

I hope they will provide the docs. However if they are not provided you may wish to make a freedom of information request. This takes time and as such you may wish to make this application immediately. If you decide to do this be very careful in your wording of your request so that you are absolutel...

Re: St Philip Neri school: Archdiocese appeals planning enforcement order

Hello JRW

Have you considered approaching planning aid for London some help in this? They may also be able to provide advice on probono legal support?

What were they thinking

The mayor of London, Lewisham Council and Thames water have created an almighty eyesore at the entrance of the beautiful Mayow Park by erecting what must be the worlds ugliest water fountain ever, just yards away from an existing one.

What were they thinking?

Christmas lights

After years of very poor quality Christmas lights and a sad Christmas tree what a much better display we have this year. The lights are really quite professional and the Christmas tree on Queensthorpe is really lovely. So well done to all those who have helped to make such a massive difference. Cred...

Re: What’s going on at x?

I Understand that the landlord has put up the rent at cherry and ice to an unaffordable level. I noticed today that everything except fixtures and fittings has been removed so it seems sadly unlikely that it will reopen. On more positive news, in terms of investment, I understand that the unit next ...

Re: Queensthorpe Road Smart Bench

Has anyone else noticed the state of the smart bench at the bottom of Queensthorpe? Good idea in theory but now looking an ugly and dirty state after just after year of installation. Underneath the bench is filthy, the wooden bench damaged, the paintwork now peeling and the structure rusting and now...

Re: New houses

I’ve looked at the docs. The proposal is that the development will be car free. 34% of the units will be “affordable”. Of the affordable homes just over half (55%) will be affordable rent and just under half (45%) will be shared ownership. Affordable rent is usually about 80% of market rent and is t...

Re: What's up with Cherry and Ice??

So it looks like one of the reasons why Cherry & ice have closed for sometime is that it is diversifying.

New vinyl lettering on the window is promoting picture framing and mirror cutting services.

If they do it will be a very interesting and welcome addition to the high street!

Re: Sydenham Post Office to close for refurbishment

I personally think they have done a quite good job. A good sign outside, painted, a decent amount of stationary and a friendly service.

Re: Poundstretcher in old co-op site

Hello Parker.

Two different Tesco employees said it was jacks however at the Sydenham society agm they said it wasn’t.

Apparently they say it will be a national discount retailer. Poundland and wilko are not opening new sites. I would hazard a guess that it might be B&M or Homebargains. Oh joy!

I think it’s a great project which I fully support and I did write in to support the planning application. I am also willing to contribute to crowd funding.

Re: Mamma Dough

Love Raffs and will continue to frequent often and I agree some of their specials are beautiful. However I think Mamma Dough is an excellent addition to the high street. Very reasonably priced for me. Most pizzas are £10 or below, only their specials are £12. The food I have had has always been deli...

I have been directed to this forum.

I can confirm that Sivyers yard is not for sale and never has been, not sure where that rumour came from.
Thank you CCC. Can i ask in what capacity you confirm that it is not for sale? Are you the owner?
